Consolidated Line of Sponsorship (CLOS)
Twelve Eastern European Amway markets: Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey and Ukraine, are combined into a Consolidated Line of Sponsorship (CLOS) Region. This will allow all current and new ABOs and Members Plus to personally sponsor within and into each of these countries. Option of international sponsoring between the countries within CLOS Region is discontinued. (All businesses established before CLOS will continue to count according to international sponsoring rules.) International sponsoring from outside the CLOS Region continues to be available. If an ABO has no business in any of the countries that make up the CLOS Region, he will be allowed to establish one new business in the CLOS Region. An ABO or Member Plus who already has at least one business in the CLOS region will not be allowed to establish another one.
PV Performance Bonus
Retail margin or mark up for Amway products averages about 30% but varies with each product. The average retail margin for this market is 30%.

Please note: For those markets where foreigners are able to establish a second business, they must be the international sponsor of their second business in another country.
If you have an Amway business in any of Eastern European CLOS countries you will use this Amway number for Sponsoring purposes (see Overview section for details).
